WIP Ferengi battleship

I wanted to do a battleship for the Ferengi, that would be situated in TNG after the Borg attack in their sector (In the books). As such, I am trying to respect the look and colour tones, but with a bit more aggressive look.

I don't have much time for 3D these days. I changed the central part a bit, because it wasn't alien enough for me. Second I wanted a reflective/glossy texture that would shows the greed and vanity of the ferengi.

Re: WIP Ferengi battleship

Work on the main texture quite a bit. Also put guns on the side, but I am not really sure about it...that's why there is no texture on it yet.

Re: WIP Ferengi battleship

The Ferengi fleet really hasn't been given much fan service. In fact, the only non-canon vessel class that I can think of is the Vagabond class from the Flash Trek: Broken Mirror fame.

It is really great the you are giving them some attention, and so far, the exotic look that you've given her is quite appropriate, and it surely looks alien.

Since she is a battleship, I think that when you're done with her, she should be armed to the teeth. The turrets that you've given her could be her primary/anti-capital weapons, perhaps some sort of torpedo rail cannons or accelerated energy cannons.
Her secondary and tertiary weapons could be a plethora of disruptor turrets and/or phaser emitters, and maybe a few torp launchers for good measure.

I'm excited to see how she'll turn out!

Re: WIP Ferengi battleship

I elected to put 3 canons like the 2 on the Defiant, in front of the ship. It's kind of fun to think Rom and his son would have "brought" some federation technology into Ferenginar.

Adjusted the rear hull and refine the front, adjusting the vertex and such.

I like the vaguely stag-beetle like look to it

Re: WIP Ferengi battleship

Maybe it's my eyes, but I almost detect a wood grain texture to it up close.

There was this obscure Weird Worlds comic book IRON WOLF that has a ship clad in anti-gravity wood and brass

So help me, but your textures point in that direction. Organic.

Gotta admit, At first I had my doubts about this thing, but I think it's coming together quite nicely.

The Ferengi got in to steampunk in the 21st century and never looked back.

Love the overall design of the latest update. The hard edges and flat, streamlined design makes for a familiar (but much more menacing) Ferengi warship.
